Solid - Arctic white
Arctic White is the colour you’ll get on your Mazda 3 right out of the box if you don’t specify one of the optional extras. It’s a bit bland looking on a family hatch like this, and with no special metallic or pearl finish it won’t catch the light when the sun comes out. Still, it should help your car fare well as far as its residual values are concerned.
Metallic - Ceramic white
Ceramic white is an interesting shade, because it's not quite as bright as the other white options. It's a more muted shade and could almost actually be called grey instead. It's almost like a matte shade, which gives the Mazda 3 a really unique look.
All the information you need on the Mazda 3.
Metallic - Platinum quartz
Platinum Quartz is one of the more unusual colours you could specify for the Mazda 3, but you’ll have a hard time saying this gold-beige shade is unattractive. In fact, on one of the sportier high-end trim levels, it looks really classy and its metallic finish should sparkle in the sunshine too.
Metallic - Polymetal grey
This lighter Polymetal Grey shade of paint certainly isn’t unattractive, but it does give the Mazda 3 a bit of a company-car kind of vibe. Still, grey cars are always in fashion, so it should hold its value well during your time with it. It should also do a good job of masking road muck and grime over the winter months too.
Mica - Deep crystal blue
Deep Crystal Blue is an excellent fit for the Mazda 3, particularly if you opt for one of the sportier trims with their larger smokey-grey alloy wheels. This is a rather luxurious shade of paint that really brings a high-end look, and if you show it a bit of sunshine it catches the light beautifully. Expect this colour option to stand up well as far as residual values are concerned too.
Mica - Jet black
While Jet Black is undoubtedly an attractive shade of paint in its own right, on a family hatchback that’s as attractive as the Mazda 3 it does come across as a slightly boring choice. Still, you’ll likely have an easy time finding a buyer when you decide to sell the car on. Just be aware that it’ll show up any dirt and scratches really easily, so keep an eye out for those.
Pearl - Snowflake white
Snowflake White might be one of the more reserved colours you could choose on your Mazda 3, but it can still stand out in the right conditions. Thanks to its pearl-effect finish, this icy colour scheme looks pretty stunning on a sunny day, and there’s plenty of darker exterior trim elements that make for a smart contrast. As with any white car, you might find it difficult to keep it looking clean and shiny over winter.
Premium metallic - Machine grey
This posh looking shade of grey looks right at home on the Mazda 3, and gives this attractive car an undoubtedly cool appeal. If you want a car that looks both classy and stealthy at the same time, then this is the colour to go for. Machine Grey should make for a popular choice amongst used car buyers, too, which is never a bad thing.
Special metallic - Soul red crystal
Mazda has really knocked it out of the park as far as its Soul Red Crystal paint is concerned. This is a truly gorgeous colour option, and one that really pops on the Mazda 3’s flowing bodywork. You’ll have to fork out a bit more to get it, but for the manner in which it manages to lend the 3 a look that’s simultaneously sporty and classy, it’s absolutely worth the extra outlay.
